Finally season 2 of Disrupting intergenerational cycles of trauma has landed. In this episode Lane, Mike and Grant revisit episode one – when the past stands in front of the present – especially how the past keeps being recycled in the present. So we dig a little deeper into historical trauma, what it is and how it manifests here in south africa and elsewhere in the world. It also includes a brief detour on the topic of ‘cancel culture’ and its relation to historical trauma.
This is the introduction to the new season in which we are going to explore the global reality of historical trauma – the patterns of oppression and woundedness but also, importantly, the processes of healing.
